SANTA CELEBRATION | Enjoy A Charlie Brown Experience at Fox Valley Mall In Aurora with Santa


Fox Valley Mall will have a brand-new Santa photo set to enjoy this year, inspired by the comic strip “Peanuts” and the iconic holiday TV classic, “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

The new “Peanuts Christmas Experience with Santa” set modernizes the traditional Santa visit, offering guests a branded family entertainment experience that will appeal to visitors of all ages – not just families with children. The walk-through set, the first of its kind worldwide, combines the best elements of today’s highly popular “selfie museums” with engaging digital and interactive experiences, making the wait to see Santa as much fun as the visit itself. 

New Interactive Experience Debuts Black Friday – November 27th

In keeping with this incredibly beloved tale, the new “Peanuts Christmas Experience with Santa” set takes visitors through a journey that begins at Snoopy’s famous doghouse, which acts as the grand entrance to the encounter. Inside the doghouse, guests will love reminiscing as they explore projected still and moving images on the walls – turning Snoopy’s doghouse into a portal to the Peanuts world. Next stop, the show’s famous Christmas tree lot, with trees that provide a timed light show, coming to life with dance and song. A socially distant visit and photo opportunity with Santa comes next, before people complete their Peanuts adventure. Then, visitors move back into the experience, taking selfies with 3D sculptures of Snoopy and Charlie Brown before visiting Lucy’s interactive Holiday Help stand where Lucy will ask questions and provide advice. At the next interactive station, visitors can dance along with their favorite Peanuts characters on a unique LED-activated dance floor, perfect for shooting fun-filled family videos. The experience concludes with a visit to Charlie Brown’s mailbox where guests are invited to leave letters to Santa.
